Subject: Jerry's contemporaneous take on this show
June 13, 1972: KSAN Jerry Garcia Interview
KSAN: Were you at the Fillmore the last night when they made the movie Fillmore?
JERRY: Yeah. Yeah, we were. We struggled to avoid getting into the movie because it was like really a notably bad night for us and the tapes were a drag, and everybody was out of tune and everything, and we were - it was that thing of not having played for a couple of weeks, you know, three or four weeks we'd been in the studio.
KSAN: Couldn't you fake it and synch it in later?
JERRY: Well yeah, but we didn't really wanna do that either. But finally Graham just hassled us and hassled us and we finally went for it. We doctored 'em up a bit.
Subject: FM Broadcast
Show started at 7pm and ended after midnight, best $7 I ever spent!!!!!!
Subject: Live at Closing of Fillmore West
Does anyone know where the coverart comes from?
It's a crowd of "psych" heads in blue color.
Subject: Out of tune for a lot of the show
The recording is excellent but about half of the performance is unlistenable to me.

Subject: '71 sound
Subject: One of the all time great classics...
Every song is stunningly well played, though the band is slightly out of tuna at times. Dont miss the fantastic Other One suite.
Gorgeous and lively Pre-FM sound/mix quality to this incredible performance which is certainly one of the best of 1971, if not all time. (100 pts)
Subject: Great vibe
Subject: must have TOP PRE KEITH HEAVY JAM
and it is a very hot phil show...but they are ALLL hopped up, equally bobby though he suffers longer out of tune, amazing that they just hang on to the edge and Willlllllll out the music knowing right from the git that they are going to kill it....jerry comes back blazing on railroad blues and you sail on in PHIL euphoria into hard to handle which is gutter punk dirty from pig, prompting jerry and bob to speak up with little dueling stabs, and bobby hangs in smart!!! he could follow jer's prompts, he learned from five years of phil navigating ....a juiced ensemble interplay flowers, jerry illuminating all....i think they're in tune now.....
deal from jerry when he put deep soul in it.....and amazing DYNAMICS, command of the room, like are they not closing down the joint? their own little playpen.... they bounce rockets of sound off the walls
bobby starts promised land and at the first chance for a solo jerry just goes maniacal and melts ears in the fillmore, it lands to the sound of a stunned audience, who are just appropriately and audibly AMPED all night....boys give em that good lovin and give em a break give em that good good lovin and let em have it....perfect, with no organ at all from pig, but the three axegrinders are in such fine and perfectly balanced form and aligned so sweetly with billy who just prods everyone along with some expert floaty ride, i think he was really a little ahead of them all hearing this, he was pushing the jazz element all along and this is a great chance to hear him take the jam out in that direction.....jerry guides the action into more of a rhythm and blues flavor but they are far gone into the space they are headed for in the next year, farther than they'd ever been,,,,,and this is a taste, curtosy of billy kreutzmann and friends, brilliant drummig on the edge....REMEMBER>>>>REfuTTTingMEMBER!!! this is FUTTING GOOD LOVIN.....gone dEEEEP spAce.....
as pig steps to the stage tired of the spacey bullshit, billy lays down a totally new, straight funk beat, happily picked up by all and twisted into psychedelic hues as pig hangs in, trying to keep planted on the earth as the 4 space obsessed star warriors dance the heavens around him...the pig is in deep and has to talk himself out and billy complies hanging on his every word and movement as he does the 4 space obsessed star warriors dancing the heavens around them.....keep on talkin to me baby. because i still hear you....
the best you heard.....the best you ever heard, you feel alright now baby, i promise you....

I've been partial to them for more than 10yrs.
Also, is just me or everytime someone who prefers like 1980's or 90's dead comments on this period
68-71 it seems like they must be in grade school or something. MINDLESS chatter in other words as far as a review.
For instance, music before it's presented is improvisation. Good example of music's lyrical form is "PIGPEN" doing Good Lovin'.
Less charisma once he died in 1973.
Subject: Question about the setlist
Subject: Heard this broadcast live on FM
Subject: holy moley
the current Fillmore in SF is the old Fillmore Auditorium and is located at Geary & Fillmore - the Fillmore West is now a Honda dealership at Van Ness & Market (and was previously known as the Carousel Ballroom).

This one begins unremarkably (Cf. 5-6-70 MIT). After six and a half minutes, Garcia and Lesh are left alone to try to come up with something. Then, suddenly, out of the aimless wandering, there is a spark : PIGPEN!
Mr. Pig looks for a pony he can ride for about seven minutes, whereupon the band returns to the Good Lovin theme.
(I've read that this was an FM broadcast, and that The Other One was dedicated to A.S. Owsley).
